Djokovic regained N1 and distanced Alcaraz

The US Open 2023 has ended and left us with Novak Djokovic as the champion. Those 2,000 points added by the Serbian are far behind Carlos Alcaraz, who will not take the first place from him until the month of November, when the ATP Finals will be held.

This means that Nole will remain at the top of the rankings for the next two months. When he loses just 1,500 ATP Finals points to the winner the week before the tournament we can talk about changing hands, depending on what happened on the Asian tour and the European indoor tour.

Here’s how to stay in the Top 10 of the ATP Rankings after the #USOpen.

  1. Novak Djokovic: 11.795 (+1)
  2. Carlos Alcaraz: 8535 (-1)
  3. Daniel Medvedev: 7,280
  4. Holger Rune: 4710
  5. Stefanos Tsitsipas: 4615 (+2)
  6. Andrey Rublev: 4515 (+2)
  7. Jannik Sinner: 4465 (-1)
  8. Taylor Fritz: 3955 (+1)
  9. Casper Ruud: 3560 (-4)
  10. Alexander Zverev: 3030 (+2)

Besides the change of positions between 1 and 2, we must emphasize the fall of Casper Ruud within the Top 10. The Norwegian, who defended the final in New York, was eliminated in 2R and lost 1155 points, which leaving him on the doorstep of the Top 10, not far from Zverev, although with a wide margin of Tiafoe, eleventh, who still has 970 points.

In the Top 20 we have a new emergency, that of Ben Shelton. The North American, semi-finalist in this edition of the US Open, rose to 28 positions and entered the top 20 in the world, maintaining most of his points in two tournaments, this one and the Australian Open. Let’s see if it can continue the development of the circuit in 2024.

Best historical position for Nico Jarry, who is now 22nd in the Ranking, rising three positions, as well as for Seba Báez, who rose to 28th position, achieving a new personal that record. Matteo Arnaldi and Arthur Fils are the other youngsters who have broken their ceiling so far, being 47th and 44th respectively, leaving a beautiful Top 50 for the rest of the season.
